Like a child

A day of bliss
A gift of laughter
Opened slowly
Unwrapping each corner
Waiting like yesterday
Springing snake in a can
You know it is coming
As the lid comes sliding off
The joyous sound
Of laughter from within
Releasing the happy.
Childish antics
Step outside of the self
Turn back the hands of time
To innocence
To simple things
Like gifts held and released
And the sounds that fill the air
Like the birds of spring
Giving birth to the hope
Of sunny days spent
Just being
So happy.
